1968 Queue Jump ?
« on: December 02, 2023, 04:01:32 AM »
Did my car jump the queue. I have a late build 68 with matching numbers from front to back (with the odd exception of replaced parts, alternator, master cylinder). All date codes are correct on everything that I can find, even the carpet! The only abnormality I can find is the # stamped on the cowl under the wiper panel is one digit out, it then has been altered. I have the protect-o-plate and this is correct to options, engine number and tags. Has this been seen before by anyone?

It was a factory error, the VIN stamper didn't index correctly to the next digit.
The factory may have corrected it, but I think it more likely was done when someone was importing it. Easier to argue about a correction then an error. JMO.

That would explain it. I would imagine it must have been changed at the factory as the car spent its life in America until 2 years ago and I purchased it off the importer to New Zealand.

Thank you.

Thank you.

Might that be the reason for the difference in font size on the 70?
